After I posted Monday’s post, I realized I had just posted my 100th post! That was was sort of fun for me and I wanted to celebrate with all of you! (Because it sure wouldn’t be fun to sit and write 100 posts if no one was reading them!)
And that might not seem like a big deal. BUT when I started this blog less than 6 months ago, 100 posts seemed just a bit daunting and I have accomplished it! 🙂
Just for those who maybe haven’t been around for all 100 posts here is a quick recap:
I published my first post on Sept. 28, 2011 almost exactly 5 months ago – Welcome to The Frugal Homemaker
Then, I jumped right in and joined Nester while writing for 31 days straight on “31 days to Decorate your Home on a Budget” I really enjoyed writing that series – so many ideas and inspiration links can be found there. You can find all 31 days of topics here.
One of my favorite posts in that series is the very last one – 10 tips to a beautiful home
I posted the top posts of 2011 here, so I won’t recap all of those.
And some of my favorite ones have been my seasonal mantels…
Now for the part you are really reading this post for…the giveaway! I posted a few times on facebook yesterday that I thought I might try to find 100 things to giveaway to a lucky reader to celebrate…
And I think I found the perfect thing – 100 dimes!
…that will be sent to you in the form of a $10.00 Goodwill gift card!
Isn’t that fun! What could make some fun find at Goodwill even better – having me pay for it! (By the way, whoever wins this gift card – you must email or post on my facebook wall what you get with it!)
So entering is pretty easy! Just follow the instructions on the widget below and answer the question about your favorite thrift store find (there a few more ways you can enter too for extra entries!) Giveaway will end at midnight on Monday, March 5th.
(If you are reading this post in an email or in a reader, you will need to click over to the post to enter the giveaway.)
Oh, and to my friends, family, and readers that have read all 100 posts – thank you! You guys are the best! And for those readers who have joined me along the way – I am so glad you are here! I am looking forward to sharing the next 100 posts with you…
